UMVOTI Municipality officials, led by Mayor TC Ngubane observed 67 minutes for Mandela under the guise of a campaign called “Love your community” and renovated Ophofini Combined School in Emakhabeleni.

The campaign, which seeks to educate residents on the importance of looking after their structures, was first introduced to the youth in order for them to be able to teach those around them.

The day was kick-started on a high as the mayor donned his work gear and got down and dirty alongside other officials as well as sponsors.

Old doors and windows were kicked aside to make way for safer equipment.

Fresh paint licked the historic walls and new furniture entered numerous classrooms.

To wrap up proceedings for the day, the mayor, together with sponsors, handed new school shoes to needy pupils before awarding the two top performing students with laptops sponsored by Vodacom.

It is the hope of the mayor that both pupils and teachers alike will look after their improved surroundings and thereby leave a legacy for those to come after them.
